The versatile new CRX is the first and only marine refrigerator with a removable freezer compartment.

Pompano Beach, Fla., – Nov. 19, 2015Dometic Marine, a division of Dometic Group, a global provider of comfort products for the marine, truck, RV and automotive markets, announced today that the Dometic CRX refrigerator has won a DAME Design Award in the “interior equipment, furnishing, materials and electrical fittings used in cabins” category at this year’s METS.

The versatile new CRX is the first and only marine refrigerator with a removable freezer compartment, offering boat owners a unique three-in-one cabinet solution.

Further enhancing the reputation of the company as an established industry leader and refrigeration expert, the Dometic engineering team has developed a breakthrough concept which we feel will really benefit users. Durable, efficient, quiet, easy to use and stylish as well, the CRX provides boat owners with the most versatile refrigerator ever developed for the marine market.”

The CRX features an innovative flush-mount electronic thermostat control panel, located on the interior side wall for precise soft-touch temperature adjustments, and a powerful electronic three-speed variable compressor to ensure optimum performance and noise reduction.

The sleek, modern-style Dometic CRX is available with either a stainless steel door or standard door in the following sizes: the 45-liter CRX-50, 57-liter CRX-65, 78-liter CRX-80, 109-liter CRX-110 and 136-liter CRX-140.
